I guess the only option is to try to clean up the mess left by HP's CEO.
What a combination of idiots.
How is it that you can be the largest desktop vendor in the world and you can't make any money out of it? And why would a spin-off make any difference when you still have these duffers in charge.
A spin off is just the management saying "I give up" and then they distract the shareholders for a few years while they prepare their golden parachutes. Shareholders need to insist the management makes the PSG business successful.
If they can't make money out of the business get some new management.
Figure it out. It can't be that hard.
